[engl] In the bands short years so far PATSY'S RATS have been very productive when it comes to putting out singles on various labels all over this globe. You should of course track down all of them, collect them and play them when you are DJing at your favorite club, someone's birthday party or when you are day drunk on weekends. Singles are great! I know that – and you know that. But SINGLES COMPILATIONS are great too! Expecially if the singles have a constant high level like those released from PATSY'S RATS – and you don't have to stop dancing to flip the sides or put on another 45!
“Rock n Roll Friend” and “Hard Time Karen” appear on their first record, released in summer 2016 on La-Ti-Da Records. “It’s Gonna Hurt” was intended to be on the single as well but there was not enough space on the vinyl... “Burning Honey” and “Nowhere Close” appear on the second single, which was released on Dig! Records in fall 2016. “Empty Bottle” and “Let's Stay Up All Night” were recorded in the same session and appeared on a limited square hand cut record released by Super Fan 99 Records. All above songs also appeared on a cassette on Burger Records.
“More Than This” is a Roxy Music cover, it appeared on a digital only compilation on Super Fan 99 Records in summer 2017, it's a collection of covers that derive from Sofia Coppola films. “Rounding Up” and “Little Rat Charm” were released on Dirtnap Records, “It's Alright?” and “Givin' Up” were released on Wink and Spit Records, both in the summer of 2017.
This is not only a collection of singles, this is infact a perfect powerpop album you’ve been waiting since the FASTBACKS and BUSY SIGNALS
All songs written by Patsy Gelb and Christian Blunda.
